Square Enix RPG Adventures of Mana Stealth Releases on PS Vita Today

Life is just a fantasy

No doubt a nice little surprise for some of you: Adventures of Mana has hit the PlayStation Store today on Vita in Europe with, as far as we know, zero warning from publisher Square Enix.

28th June 2016 (Europe)

PS4 galore

The Technomancer (PS4)

European jank is back

The last time that Push Square visited a world made by developer Spiders, it was in the form of Bound By Flame. The 2014 title had some lofty ambitions but it failed to meet any of them, and thus shipped as a bit of a mess in both the gameplay and presentation departments. Despite those disappointments, though, the French...

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (PS4)

Lacking integrity?

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness gets off to a bad start. Text-based tutorials greet you from the off, and you're quickly shuttled from one place to another with very little reasoning or context. Early on you'll realise that this game wants things to move quickly, and this only becomes clearer as you progress through the...

High-Definition Kefka Makes Us Desperate for Dissidia Final Fantasy on PS4

As evil as ever

When it comes to Final Fantasy villains, people are quick to reminisce about the likes of Sephiroth and Seifer, but those who dabbled in the majesty of the main series' final 2D instalment will always jump at the chance to remind fans of Kefka, the deliciously devilish antagonist of Final Fantasy VI. The ruthless killer clown may...

Review: Prison Architect (PS4)

Prison Architect (PS4)

The perfect crime

Porting PC simulation games to consoles is fraught with danger, with systemic complexities and control issues abound. Thankfully, Prison Architect manages to avoid most of these pitfalls, and serves as an exemplar of how the genre should make the transition in future. In the game's main mode you'll be presented with a large plot...

Weirdness: Okay, We Admit This Destiny Exotic Weapons Rap Is Way Better than Expected

Okay, We Admit This Destiny Exotic Weapons Rap Is Way Better than Expected

Rhymes of the exotic kind

We feel the need to apologise to YouTube user Duba. When we saw that our buddies over at Eurogamer had published a story on a Destiny rap video, we feared the absolute worst, but as it turns out, this is the perfect material for one of our rather uncommon Weirdness articles. Usually found rapping about what Xur's...

Street Fighter V's Best Pro Player Rivalry Served Up an Incredible CEO 2016 Grand Final Last Night

You gotta watch this one

Fighting game tournament CEO 2016 ended with a bang last night as arguably the two best Street Fighter V players in the world went head to head in the grand final. South Korea's Infiltration has won several professional competitions already since Capcom's title launched, and he's often looked unstoppable as Nash, utilising...

Street Fighter V Free Story Mode Update Now Comes with Boxing Bruiser Balrog

But it's been delayed ever so slightly

The good news: Balrog is now busting onto the Street Fighter V scene alongside previously revealed kunoichi Ibuki as part of the game's free story mode update. The bad news: the update is no longer being released this month. The not-quite-as-disappointing-as-you-first-thought news: the update will now deploy...

Review: Umbrella Corps (PS4)

Umbrella Corps (PS4)

Corps party

Being loyal to a franchise's roots and formula is a tricky thing to manage. Veer too close and people will cry out concerns of stagnation and lack of innovation. Stray too far and they'll say it isn't worthy of the series' name. Whether this involves direct sequels or spin-offs, the amorphous goal of striding between faithfulness and...

Review: Pac-Man 256 (PS4)

Pac-Man 256 (PS4)

Maze runner

No, this isn't the 256th instalment in Namco's venerable arcade classic - the number in the title refers to the infamous glitch from the original Pac-Man. Level 256 was impossible to beat due to a jumble of letters and numbers on the right-hand side of the screen, blocking half the maze. It's this glitch, in fact, that you'll be trying...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 123

Backlog busters

You can always tell it's summer, not because the sun is shining outside, but because WAYP is filled with people playing old games. That's certainly the case this time, as the people of Push Square Towers casually go about busting their backlogs. Alex Stinton, Reviewer: There's something to be said for returning to a game well after...
